Synopsis

In 2010, a patient died under his care in a private hospital. There followed a sequence of extraordinary events that led to David being prosecuted and convicted for the patient's death and sent to prison. His licence to practise Medicine was suspended, his career cut short. Events that took place later showed that this was an unfair trial with tinges of racism, and he won an appeal against his conviction and is now a free man. But the damage had already been done. This book tells his extraordinary story for the first time, in his own words.

David Sellu lives in London with his family. He qualified in medicine from Manchester and is a semi-retired consultant general and colorectal surgeon. He now dedicates his time giving talks on his experiences at the Royal Society of Medicine, the British Association of Urological Surgeons, the Oxford Surgical Society, the West Midlands Surgical Society, the Royal College of Surgeons, the Law Society to members of the Medical Defence Union and other meetings. By doing this he hopes to raise awareness and encourage conversation about the dangerous culture of blame within the medical profession and its implications for wider learning for junior doctors, as well as others in caring professions. He also does voluntary medical work in Sierra Leone. For more information please visit https://www.davidsellu.com/.
